Traveling is a passion that comes in life when you see how happy other people are while traveling to different places. Some people do business while traveling different places and enjoy life on the road. While I can't do the same, I am inspired by folks who travel the world full time and live fully on travel blogs. E-book sales and advertising on blogs funds the whole life. It is a great way of living life.
When you travel, you get new ideas and tricks to expand the business or work. You share experience with other travelers on the road. You get information about many different things, which you cannot get without traveling. To me, travel is a priority passion while I also need to prioritize work.
Here’s 5 ways travel makes you an awesome person:

1. You become more interesting and sociable
When you travel to the different places alone and automatically you become more social. You meet with the different people and make them your friends. You share your experience with them and they do the same. You come to know about the nature of different regions in the countries. I used to be an extremely shy person. I was shy and insecure for many years of my life. Travel makes me talk to strangers, be more comfortable interacting with people and find new friends on the road. Just imagine yourself as someone greater, program yourself for confidence and you will become a more interesting person.
2. You learn way of talking
When you travel and explore the world, you learn the way of talking with people of different countries. Talking in the polite way of local style you can earn the heart of different people. If your speech is interesting and attractive, people love and enjoy having conversation with you. When I was in Nassau, the Bahamas, a sweet Bahamian lady walked me to the bus station, waited till Jitney (mini bus) arrived, told the bus driver to drop me off right in front of my destination. I thought she was also taking the bus until she waived bye to me who seated on the bus, then she walked away from the bus stop. It all started from a small talk.

3. You gain confidence
People who travel different places and meet with the strangers get the confidence to handle people. You gain the confidence by learning the different tricks from people. I make mistakes which I treat as opportunities to learn and improve for future. The more places I visit, the more I believe in myself. Travel makes me step out of the comfort zone. Travel makes me learn to be alone and to live with less.
4. You become adventurous
When you explore the place, you have to find your own adventures. Not every place keeps the nice beach or the hills for climbing. You have to find the way to make yourself adventure and explore the things in different ways. Life is all about building a journey. When I was in London, I got off bus or tube whenever I saw an interesting place to check out. I made myself lost and figured out how to get to the next stop (without having ‘G’lobal ‘P’ositioning ‘S’ystem on my phone). I just love the sense of adventure.

5. You feel happier
When you travel solo, you don’t feel stress or concern about anyone else except yourself. You become happier and enjoy your life without limits. That is the real life not everyone has the chance to enjoy. Traveling reduces stress from daily life, and creates knowledge and new ideas in your mind. Travel makes me a better and happier person. Travel makes me a fabulous woman who has her own life, who lives up to her own standards and who defines her own plans instead of following the traditions.
